A tutorial for good typography in InDesign - Setting up a baseline grid

Most designers believe they have good typography but in my experience it is something which is developed through time and experience. I think we all begin our design lives with a desire to be outrageously creative, and only as we mature, begin realise that simplicity and structure is just as, if not more important. In this article, I will go through some simple steps to acheive good clean well structured typography in Adobe Indesign. The first step is to choose your typefont. In this case I have chosen a simple standard font of Helvetica Neue. Next choose how many columns you want the page to be.

So we have set up a grid vertically, the next step will be to set up a horizontal or baseline grid, which all our text will stick to. Start the grid at 10mm in accordance with your borders. Now we will add a heading. I shall now add an introduction paragraph in the exact same way. So thats it, I have waffled on long enough.
